The first six months


Robin asked me to take a picture of my first six triangles, so here they are. Again, not the best picture (too much sun and too many shadows), but it is a work in progress. BTW, this is my current favourite configuration. I thought that I could add the other six triangles around the outside edge and then alternate with textured fibre pieces. Of course, I'll probably change my mind many times, so stay tuned. The current background is a dark green taffeta from a recycled prom dress. I think that I paid $5.99 for it at the thrift shop. I just love a bargain!

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. This is an interesting journey. I've never been able to journal in writing, but for some reason, I have no trouble doing it this way.

Wow! I'm glad Robin suggested this too. With the other 6, this will be awesome.

Robin said...

My fingers are itching terribly to get at these triangles and play with them... I want to arrange them every possible way!!! Thanks so much for showing the group. They're wonderful together and I do like your arrangement. Can't wait to see the next one! Robin A.
